Clara Saenzpardo, 28, of Oakland attends the march protesting war.
The protesters chanted, banged on drums, waved signs and listened to speakers rail against “American imperialism” in the Middle East and Africa, the “illegal state of Israel” and the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps who was killed this month in an air strike ordered by President Trump.
After an hour, the group marched up Powell Street to Union Square in an attempt to avoid bumping into a simultaneous antiabortion march down Market Street.
“We should just not go into any other countries for war, just for our own selfish values, oil or suppressing people’s rights,” said Sarah Schilbach, 47, of Montara, who carried a globe and waved a sign criticizing the American penchant for starting wars to quench the country’s thirst for oil. “I would love for our president to just have more of a verbal communication with a country to work things out nonviolently.”
